Have you thought about contacting the BBC? I'm sure they'll have some archive film.
BTW,is the reason you haven't seen it because (gulp) you won it?

I remember watching this race - well before Paula Radcliffe had burst on the scene, Liz McColgan won it by a street, in the sort of style we associate with Paula nowadays.
In many ways it surpasses anything Paula has yet managed, as it was a track World Championship event, run in high temperatures (~30C) with humidity to match - conditions made for the Africans. Despite this, McColgan stuck by her front running game plan and broke the entire field. Derartu Tulu was a distant 2nd and Brendan Foster pronounced it the greatest piece of British track running he'd ever seen. Undeservedly forgotten in the decade since.
